Early days yet, but can you let me know if you plan to attend both days and camp or stay in a local B&B. This year as far as I'm aware all members can arrive Friday and stay through until Monday (which is what I did last year as event organiser, which takes a lot of stress out of it and makes the most of the Sunday evening concert) Big Grin

I have been speaking to the event organisers this morning and can confirm the following:
The events are 3 days this year.
There is a £450 fee for a Club stand (that’s approx £65 per car/couple for the whole 3 days) Dontions to BBC Children in Need included.
Each club will be allocated seven car spaces for a club stand (that’s 7 cars per day)
A total of 14 exhibitors passes (two passes per car) which allow each entry on each of the three days of CarFest
Club member camping pitches can be bought for £25 per night in the Crew Camping area (this was £120 last year so it’s a good result) Big Grin

Hi,
My car is finally nearly back on the road, just needs a couple of injection tweaks and tracking done and it's there, with a chassis with no rust.

I came to Carfest last year and it was great to see the Deloreans having a presence and nice to chat to people. I'm keen to bring my car this year, so if you're organising a stand please count me in and let me know the details. We brought the campervan last year but if that's not possible then tentage is quite acceptable, if I can remember where I put it.

I hope to get active in the club as the weather improves.

Hi,

Time for a Carfest Booking Update….

Our Club pitches are confirmed at both North & South, and I will need to pay for them soon.
So; we need 7 cars each day (doesn’t have to be the same 7 if you just want to attend 1 day)

Confirmed so far are:

South Plenty of spaces left!

Me
Rich J
Tony Lawther

Can those above please indicate the dates/days they plan to arrive & depart, number of persons and whether camping is required and for what nights. (support vehicles are allowed to aid camping/setting up, but will then need to be moved to a separate car park afterwards for the duration) As far as I’m aware at the moment we can arrive from noon Friday and depart Monday evening.

Once I have all your requirements I can let you individually know the cost.

Regards

What a truly magical weekend! Big Grin

Just when I thought Carfest North couldn’t have been any better, Carfest South surpassed all expectations.

I’d like to say a VERY big thank you to all those that attended, without people like you there would be no festival.

The word on the street is that we helped raise £2Million this year for Children in Need. Big Grin Big Grin Big Grin

There were so many brilliant things that I don’t know where to start trying to explain them to those members who couldn’t make it. Hopefully some of you who did might like to post your favourite pictures and experiences of the weekend.

I cant wait to see the BBC film of the event with the worlds first Delorean door Mexican wave, even if we did balls it up a bit…. :wink:

Thanks again to all that attended. Here’s looking forwards to 2014.
